Honcho Ultra-Conservatives Pushing McCain to Pick Romney as his VP

Reported by Melanie - March 3, 2008 -

Robert Novak was a guest just now (March 3, 2008) on Your World w/Neil Cavuto. The topic, per the chyron was, "Can One Man Make McCain Ticket Unbeatable?" Per Novak, Karl Rove and other honchos in the conservative wing of the conservative party are pushing John McCain to pick Mitt Romney as his veep. Novak listed Romney's qualificactions: "He's rich, he's handsome," he "wasn't a conservative at one time -- he's pretty conservative now," and he would do well "in the rust belt" states.

And, per Novak, never mind that McCain and Romney hate each other. Kennedy didn't like Johnson and Reagan didn't like George I.

On the other hand, a potential "dark horse" pick could be Rob Portman of Ohio. His qualifications? He's "good looking...very smart, good debator."

Thought you'd enjoy chewing over this buzz.
